A warm hello from Hong Kong!

Dear all,

Apologies for abandoning my blog for so long.  Summer had been busy with my toddler, who is going to be 4 years old next month!  And September I was busy preparing for my toddler's new school year, before I went off to France for 2 weeks at the end of September with my husband to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary.

Anyway, at long last, I am back in Asia and back to my normal schedule.  I have a lot of pictures to share with you on my Burgundy and Paris trip, and of course, my new loots!!  I didn't really shop a lot this trip (as compared to my March trip this year)......just enjoying Paris and doing people watching and strolling through the city.

My schedule is very hectic these few weeks as I am preparing for a big "move" next year.  Will let you know once everything is confirmed.  It is a big step for me as I have never done anything like this before, but I want to do something for myself before it is too late.  I think it will all be worth it in the end.

Another thing is that I just changed to MacBook Air last month, and I am still "learning" how to be a mac user (after so many years as an IBM ThinkPad die-hard fan), especially in the area of posting pictures, resizing, watermarking (still haven't found a perfect freeware for watermarking on MAC!!) etc.  That is why I haven't yet uploaded any pictures from my France trip.  :P

I will be working on the pictures starting next week and hopefully, I will be able to be back to blogging again next month.  I have a couple of ODJs to post as well with my new Hermes and Chanel loot so stay tuned!

So sorry again for the silence.  Thank you so much for all your support and patience!  Till my next post!


P.S.  If any of you know which is the best software for batch resizing and watermarking of pictures for MAC, please do leave me a message here.  I will really really appreciate it. :)   TIA!


  1. Try getting Acorn. That's what I used before I switched to Photoshop! All the best. Can't believe your M is already 4!

  2. Glad to hear from you again. I've been following your blog before your silence and digging it after.Glad to know I got to read your stories and see your beautiful purses again. Welcome back!:)

  3. So nice to hear that you are going to be back! You can use (it's free) if you don't have photoshop!

    xo, sam

  4. Happy to see you are back! Can't wait to see your ODJs!

  5. i am very curious of your big 'move'. please keep me updated.
    well, i can see your new 'move' on facebook now too if you post there.. :)


  6. Oh I cant even use Mac!! Nice to hear from you Mia, guess what?? I am contemplating my first Hermes purchase, I am so excited. Will share with you when it finally happens x

  7. Mia, glad to see you are blogging again! I'm not a MAC user but I know that GIMP (I use it too) is the best freeware close enough to Photoshop, with similar plugins, and you can use it on Mac too. Read here for batch editing and watermarking.

    Looking forward to your new posts.

  8. Really happy to hear your updates and exciting news! I'm not sure I can wait long so hope you'll spill the beans v v soon :-)
    Take care.

  9. Have you tried Lightroom, it's great for simple editing and the watermarking tool is easy to use.


  10. I must say the last time i have seen you blog I dreamed about your shoes and channel bags hahah,,,just wondering what kind job you husband does,,,how do you have so much money??? to buy all the fancy stuff,,,I just love your taste on bags and shoes,even thou you are a very rich perhaps millionaire person you still cool and down to earth,,,cheers xoxo

  11. Hi Mia, I've been following your blog since 2009 and I love all your ODJs. Thanks for sharing all your Chanel and Hermes purchases. So sad that you want to privatise your blog but I totally understand why. Can I be added to your Friends list please? Would really love to be able to continue reading your blog. Thanks!
